How did CodeIgniter run out of steam?

In the late 2000s when Symfony was the go-to for PHP frameworks, this brand new framework called CodeIgniter tried to shake things up in the ecosystem and I thought it would be the hot new s***. It was picking up some and I really liked it how things were done. It was what got me into MVC architecture. And then there's the ExpressionEngine which was built on top of it.
Now I'm surprised to see Symfony still going strong and CodeIgniter has been mostly phased out, only to be maintained for older projects. What happened with it? Why didn't it have longer lasting power? And how do you predict when a newer framework will run out of steam quicker than the older framework it tried to overtake?
